Air Portable Ferry Bridge (APFB)

The Air Portable Ferry Bridge (APFB), initially manufactured to meet requirements from the British Army, can be used by light forces in roles which increasingly demand mobility and flexibility. A modular system that can be transported rapidly and easily by land, sea and air, the APFB can be built by troops or trained civilians in military or civil emergency applications.


The APFB is rapidly transportable by air

Despite its light weight and portability, the APFB has a military load classification of MLC 35 to carry tracked and wheeled vehicles. It can be used to bridge both wet and dry gaps, employed as an overbridge and deployed as a free-ranging ferry system. Versatility is further enhanced with the facility to configure transportation using its own trailers, pallets or ISO containers — making it ideal for disaster relief operations, as well as fly forward forces.
